Today, people all around the world are celebrating – because it’s Beyonce’s birthday!
Beyonce has accomplished a great amount in her career. From her Destiny’s Child days to her breakout as her own pop star, she has owned the music industry, broken records, and empowered women everywhere.
This year, Beyonce dropped her Homecoming film, revolving around her headlining set at Coachella. Fans were thrilled to witness Beyonce behind the scenes in preparation for the festival, (This performance was historical, as she was the first African-American woman to headline.) Beyonce wrote, directed, and executive produced it, and won the award for Variety, Comedy or Music Program from International Online Cinema Awards TV Awards. It also earned six Emmy nominations. Just like she slays in music, she can hold her own in the film industry, too.
Beyonce has started a cultural movement and many conversations about race and feminism, and we are beyond grateful that a star as large as Beyonce is creating change in the industry.
